Neighborhood Revitalization and the Business District
11:30 a.m. - 2 p.m. | Thursday, Nov. 3, 2011 - Louisville, Ky.
If capital is thin but vision is bold, residents and stakeholders can still assemble the necessary resources—expertise, passion and investment—to champion and establish favorable conditions for the redevelopment of commercial corridors and neighborhood-serving businesses. Assembling the team, preparing the players and understanding the moves in this high-stakes game are essential to robust neighborhood revitalization.
Now more than ever, being prepared for opportunity is critical. Discover how you can do so by attending this lunchtime forum. During the meeting, Jeffrey A. Morgan, an architect/urbanist and candidate for Master in Design Studies at Harvard University Graduate School of Design, will present “(Re)Vitalizing Inner-City Neighborhood Business Districts: An Assessment and Strategy Framework for Integrated Micro-business and Real Estate Development by Nonprofits.”
Morgan’s presentation will be followed by a panel discussion, “Been There, Done That—and It Works! What’s in Place (and What’s Missing) to Optimize Business District Revitalization in Neighborhoods.” Bill Weyland, CityVisions Associates, will facilitate the panel discussion. In addition to Morgan, panelists will include:
- Sarah McGraw Greenberg, senior manager, Community Stabilization, NeighborWorks America
- Robert Holmes, Jr., CCIM, president and CEO, Corporate Services Consultants, LLC
This event is free; however, registration is required by Monday, Oct. 31, as space is limited. Lunch will be provided.
Presented by the Louisville Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, JPMorgan Chase Foundation and New Directions Housing Corporation, a NeighborWorks America network member.
